About Us

Our Mission

The mission of SurvivingBreastCancer.org is to empower those diagnosed with breast cancer and their families, from day one and beyond.  Founded on October 4, 2017, by a young breast cancer survivor, Survivingbreastcancer.org is an educational and virtual patient care platform.  

At Survivingbreastcancer.org, we believe that an integrative approach to a breast cancer diagnosis plays an important role during treatment and  throughout survivorship.  Our virtual educational and patient care community meets you where you are.  Whether you are undergoing chemotherapy, radiation, or surgery, you are several years with no evidence of disease, or you are living with metastatic breast cancer, SurvivingBreastCancer.org is a complement to your care.​

Volunteer Group

We defines survivors as anyone who has been diagnosed with breast cancer; you are surviving! 

How We Do It

We achieve our mission through three main pillars:

  • Community engagement and connection

  • Programming and support services

  • Education and information dissemination. 

Survivingbreastcancer.org is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization committed to supporting those who have been touched by breast cancer.  Whether you are caring for someone who has been diagnosed, know someone who has breast cancer, have been diagnosed yourself or carry one of the gene mutations, we understand that a breast cancer diagnosis can be life changing and overwhelming.  Out of the need to navigate the uncertainty and the strong desire for connection, support, and resources, surivingbreastcancer.org was born.

A fundamental piece of the breast cancer journey revolves around well-being and quality of life.  This translates into how community, education, support, and wellness complement one's treatment plans and continues not only through survivorship, but thrivership! ​
